I think this is a combination of elements that the
stylesheet isn't handling right.  The way I read
refentry.xsl, a <refentry> element starts a page
sequence only if it is the root element or inside

Deciding which elements start page-sequences is tricky
because you cannot nest page-sequences.  Yet elements
that might start page sequences can be contained in other
elements that start page sequences.  That means the
stylesheet has to know all the combinations to sort out
which element can or cannot start a page sequence.  

In your combination, it looks like no element started the
page sequence to contain the refentries.
